This is a hitting game I use for [tag]baseball hitting practice[/tag] to increase “at bat percentage” hits under pressure. As a [tag]baseball coach[/tag] I am always trying to come up with a fun game to wrap up practice and create a good competition as well; this [tag]baseball drill[/tag] works!
All players are lined up in dugout in order ready to hit. The baseball coach is pitching.
Drill is run in rounds.
Every player at bat until they get a fair hit. (Allows every player to see pitches and get at least one hit and the coaches to see how every player is hitting.
Each player has 3 strikes to get a fair hit. (balls don’t count, but if a player lets a strike go by, it counts) Foul tips keep you alive
Each player who makes a hit goes to the end of the line, any player who does not get a hit grabs their glove and gets on the field. Any player in the field who catches a fly ball is back in the line up.
Same as round 2, but only 2 strikes to get a fair ball hit. Foul tips keep you alive
Only 1 strike, but ok to foul off a pitch. If you foul one off your still alive and stay in the box until you either miss a strike, or get a fair hit.
5th round –
1 Strike, no foul tips. If it is a strike and you swing and miss your out, swing and foul your out, strike and watch it, your out.
Run this [tag]baseball[/tag] drill until there is only one standing. That player wins and gets some predetermined prize.
